Abstract/Description

Having surgery is a significant stressor that many children experience. The anxiety that these pediatric patients experience before surgery is correlated with increased pain, analgesic consumption, sleeping problems, feeding difficulties, apathy, and withdrawal during the postoperative period (Copanitsanou & Vakleapää, 2014). Currently, the most common anxiety-reduction method is sedation. Four articles investigate alternative methods such as a preoperative tour of the operating room (OR), role-play, and preview and play with hospital equipment.
